20 Twitter Users Every Fashion-Forward Person Should Follow

If a huge part of fashion is about what’s avant-garde and what’s cutting edge, then the kinds of high-frequency updates Twitter provides are highly ideal. If you consider yourself fashion-forward, hop on the Twitter train to fashion supremacy by following a wide variety of design-minded accounts. Update your Twitter today by following these 20 users who know something a little more than not to mix navy blue and black.

1. @FashionweekNYC. The enthusiasm that this “Independent Entertainment Tweetologist” has for fashion shines through pleasingly in her tweets. Fashion Weeks around the world present the most prestigious displays of high fashion, and getting the kind of frequent updates that this account provides will get you excited about Fashion Week, and fashion in general, every day.

2. @InStyle. Magazines have been classic portals into the fashion world for decades. Whether it’s the glossy pages or their punchy articles that get you to buy the print edition, following In Style’s Twitter is a worthy venture for fashionistas to keep up with mainstream industry trends.

3. @themoment. The New York Times’s “The Moment” Twitter is a great resource because it demonstrates how high fashion can meld with top-notch journalism. “Where style meets culture” is its tag line, and so for the perspective of an international publication trying to put fashion in a larger context, there are few better places.

4. @GiltGroupe. Wht’s fashion without the shopping, after all? A great business venture turned great business success, Gilt — which offers discounted designer wear — tweets frequently enough to help you get the deals you want, when you want.

5. @VogueParisLive. Vogue brings the glamour back into fashion, and if you’re going to pick one of Vogue’s many branches to follow, Paris is easily the most romanticized choice. Plus, the fact that most tweets are in French might motivate you to brush up on your language skills which will expand your fashion world-view.

6. @Modelinia. Controversial though some of their conventions may be, models are a huge part of the fashion world. This account gives information about the experience of actually wearing these artful clothes — reminding us that they’re not just pieces for museums or high scrutiny, but are items that we put on living people.

7. @victoriabeckham. With big fashion comes big names. Victoria Beckham embodies the public world of high fashion and the attitudes surrounding it. Hearing about her everyday fashion conundrums — “I have been told to wear something waterproof for my baby shower!!!!I’m now very nervous!!!!x vb” — also adds a little life into your Twitter feed.

8. @TyraBanks. Tyra Banks has turned her modeling career and fashion-know how into prominent television programming, but the greatest part of her tweets is probably their emphasis on girl power and womanhood.

9. @GQFashion. The account‘s description reads “Your daily style authority,” and that’s exactly what they provide. For everyday fashion-forward tips — especially for men, who are often sidelined in mainstream fashion magazines — these tweets will come through for all followers.

10. @dolcegabbana. Following high-end designers provides a number of advantages. One of the perks of Dolce & Gabbana’s tweets is their fun updates about which celebs are wearing their clothing.

11. @WorldMcQueen. Ever since the Royal Wedding and Kate Middleton’s dress — designed by Sarah Burton, McQueen’s successor — Alexander McQueen’s name is a fashionista-household name more than ever. Plus, over 43,000 people visited the McQueen show at the Met in NYC already, representing a significant population that has been inspired to see clothing as art.

12. @BusinessGirls. Representing the Businesswoman Boutique, @BusinessGirls puts fashion in a practical context. Even if you work from home, fresh, unaffected tweets about things like how to update your Little Black Dress, are a great addition to any fashionista’s timeline.
